Toshiba Origami handheld on its way

At its recent launch, Microsoft's "Origami" ultramobile PC got dissed because, among other things, no well-known PC makers were on board. But now there are whispers that Toshiba, a major laptop maker, plans to come out with its own version of the handheld. GottaBeMobile tracked down the rumors to an article in APC Magazine, which recently interviewed a Toshiba product manager about an upcoming handheld whose specs -- a screen smaller than 7 inches, pen entry, with a Tablet PC operating system -- sound suspiciously like an Origami device. If the rumors pan out, getting Toshiba on board would be a boost for Microsoft's new handheld platform.
